How often do we feel this sense of trying to bridge the separation of different worlds within us, whether it’s our home life and work life, or it’s our family and our friendships, or our spirituality and the demands of the culture? This is a classic inner struggle, but one that is lessened when we bring everything into an inner space that can expand to accommodate it. There, in a space of our connection, everything can be held in the settlement of the universal us.

Jeane: So my dream seemed to be shaped by our having watched The Blacklist last night. One of the features of that film was a lot of things all happened at once to save someone, and then that woman – the star of the show and her husband – are in separate places. He’s in Germany and she’s in another city.

So it felt like in my dream everything was happening and falling into place in the last minute, but then there was a separation. And I’m trying to figure out how to handle that, and it’s represented in the dream by the fact I’ve gone to work in an office, but in the office I seem to have to go between two workspaces that are across the hall from each other.

In one workspace, that maybe we could all crowd around a table if we had a meeting, but we couldn’t all fit into the offices there. Plus I have some stuff I have to mail out, and it feels like I have to take it back and forth from one office to the other. And then I’m in one office and the material seems to be in the other office.

I want to file it, but I have to figure out how to get it together – because it’s in one place, and then I may be in the other. And then I have to go back and forth and figure out where it belongs, and what do I do about the fact that I can’t fit everything together in one area? What I have to do is keep going back and forth and studying out the situation. 

Then when I study it further I realize I’ve just started work there, I even seem to find a piece of paper with my job acceptance and it’s around the sixth of January, I think. For some reason, when I’d apply for the job they’d actually had me send in some information on my horoscope, which I thought was odd that they’d even take me for a job when I did that. 

And then I realize that the person, when they gave the horoscope back to me, had given me some papers and information I didn’t even know I had. So I’m taking that back to my office to file and look at and figure out exactly the date. I’m still having this feeling of how I’m trying to put things together, but they don’t all quite pull together yet.

John: Dreaming like that leaves you kind of in a grog, because what you’re really kind of doing is you’re following into a greater depth of yourself something other than just what you identify with visibly.

In your dream you were having images of things that are more than the given context of the situation. The reason why you’re having these images of a greater context of the situation is because you’re grasping to try to catch up with a sense of connectivity, or feeling, or overallness that you feel is required in order for you to be yourself

And so you are caught in the usual orb that a person has in terms of trying to grow or develop consciously. However, we in the physical, feel that we have to, or are caught in what we see, and we relate to that reflectively. 

When something is pushing you into something more of a depth of yourself, that something more that you experience of yourself is like being able to catch up with something that you can’t see – but is you. It’s who you are, naturally. And if you spin and spin in trying to experience that via a putting your finger on everything type identification – that doesn’t work, either.

In fact something like that tends to make you cough; it can make you cough. So there’s two ways in which a person can end up coughing, or feeling discombobulated. One in which you are acting in the outer as if you’re going to pull the outer into a greater understanding and graspability – but are, in effect, actually being drawn more into an inner space, an inner space in which there is a light or a quality of your nature that you don’t see, but is the real you.

To the degree to which you fight that, you create an awkwardness in terms of how you are in the physical. You either create the awkwardness in terms of over indulgence in trying to pull something through like that – this is hard to say. 

You’re working on the schematic of: how do you function in a reflective world? If you’re suddenly drawn into an energetic that’s non-reflective, which is kind of what is happening, and it makes you really, really groggy, and you fight that because that’s not in keeping with the way that your mind and your senses have been inclined to work, which is to deal with things that are identified, the endeavor to disassociate yourself from the natural flow can cause you to cough and have an imbalance. 

However, the grogginess, and the part of you that wants to sit in a deeper soothingness as a space within, is the hidden light, so to speak, that you are drawn to as the natural part of who you are.

So, in your dream, you had this broken up in a couple of different ways. You had the idea of something one place, and then something another place. What’s involved there is the black-and-white having to make something, a sense out of something, in an outward context way – and it will and can eventually make you sickish because the dynamic at a deeper level has to do with being able to feel, inside of yourself, something that you can’t put your finger on. 

That’s the nature of what’s going on in everything. There’s something shifting going on in life, that one cannot see, and that a human being is developing a greater and greater sense of that. And that greater and greater sense of what they’re developing is who they really are.

unnamedSometimes our dreams can be very blunt in their symbolism. And we know that sometimes the tiniest infection can cause the most annoying pain. So if we get a dream image like this, what is bothering us? What is infecting us? And, in the end, is it important? Do we have control of it? Letting go of what we hold onto, or focus too intently on, can often provide the relief we seek. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In this last dream, you and I are in a bed, and you have a hair that’s become inflamed. And I want to either cut it, or pluck it out, I forget which. But you keep turning because you’re not sure you want anybody else to do it. But then I can see that you’d be likely to pull out the wrong hair. But it feels like you won’t let me pull it out; you’re trying to do it yourself.

But I’m not sure you pull out the right one. That was my dream.

John: This dream caught up to something that was subtler, in the other dream, that you probably didn’t necessarily recognize, or was missed, in the other dream. So, it brought it back in this image in which there is an awkward frustration, or mannerism, that takes and dwells in kind of a sensation sense – that isn’t letting go.

You’re the one that’s anguishing over something that is an aspect of something outside of yourself. And this is causing you to have a mood and mannerism in an estranged way. And there’s something more beyond all of this, beyond that, and that you, in accessing or understanding that, can let go of having to carry some sort of mood or mannerism.

The first dream had the impact of how something comes through that sweeps you up. You can’t stay in a mood or mannerism, in that dream, when you are in a stage of enlivened wonderment. The other was almost like a step back and being affected by conditions that are bothering you, that is causing an indulgence, and a dwelling, that’s awkward, very frustrating, peculiar.

It’s as if what you’re looking at, or how you’re looking at it, no matter what you do, is never going to be right. So it’s almost like, whatever the mood and the mannerism is, you have to let go in order to see that it’s a non-event. In other words, you’re perpetrating something, upon yourself, that is unnecessary. Maybe that’s a way to say it.

Pico Iyer

When speaking of an inner stillness, it may seem hard to imagine how we might get through a busy airport in that state, or manage any stressful situation. Yet if we understand the laws of energy, we will see that when we add our intense energy to an already intense situation, we are actually feeding the intensity. Just as when we get into an argument with someone, the back and forth feeds the original spark and makes it worse. So when we remain in a stillness, we observe the energies of other things, rather than feed those energies. Said another way, why would we want to feed the things that make us stressed out? (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in the meditation dream, I find myself holding off from responding to an issue in which there is an invoking of an outer response. In other words, it’s an outer trying to get my attention. And so I’m holding off responding to it. And I hold out because I know, deep inside, that the response cannot be an in-sync reply. In other words, you can’t respond to the outer, reflections cannot meet reflections. 

So I hold back and do not reciprocate, outwardly, because there’s something inside of me, and

I consider it like the soul, or something, which is refusing to move and wants to just stay still. It won’t buy into this outer that is trying to grab my attention. So I find myself surrendered to the inner stillness. In other words, I just can’t bite; that motion just doesn’t grab me. 

And so what does that mean? Does it mean that the outer vibrations are somehow or another absorbed by the stillness, or into the heart, or somehow? And that my mind, that normally buys into the outer reflections, just cannot do it? In other words, there’s something that has gotten more meaningful in terms of staying still with a more all-consuming heartfulness. 

So that causes me to wonder: what is this stillness? And I come to ponder it as relating to a plane of the soul, which is where surrender and non-being come together, and where everything is absorbed. The outer is absorbed by this encompassing heart, or something. In other words, the reflections aren’t separate; the reflections can all be taken within. And so, in other words, there’s always going to be reflections, but the reflections you don’t take them with you in bizarreness, the reflections stay as manifestation, still in terms of the degree to which something has to act out vibrationally with images. 

And you’re always noting the degree of true stillness by looking at the greater teacher of the outer, that is manifestation, but you don’t try to change the outer in order to get to the inner. Such a mindset, in which the outer vibratoriness and corresponding images are something that you can bring with you into the plane of the soul. It just isn’t so; because they are reflections they veil the heart from the inner.

So what happened is, in my meditation dream, I was able to not reciprocally react, because I was on the plane of the universal soul where stillness is natural. Now, the alternative to that, of course, is an outer reflective in which the senses portray the reflective physical and the result, then, of something like that is kind of an ego orientation floundering as manifestation. In other words, playing out the vibrations in the images – because vibrations and images are correlated. Or, to put it another way, manifestation exists as an outer reflection in which vibrations correspond to created images. 

And so this has caused me to notice a psychic illusion. To visualize within an outer future unfoldment involves the taking of a vibratory energetic from the stillness into physical manifestation, and doing it, this time, in which you stop time, as if irrelevant. In other words, manifestation is a conditional reflection involving time and vibration, which densed down becomes physical space. 

So psychic inflections are a deviation in one of two ways in terms of the stillness. They are a deviation in that you can have a psychic quality in which you transcend time, so that you can come to see things backwards and forwards and up and about. That’s a psychic trait. 

Or you can take and you could still be buying into time, but you can get rid of vibrations, in which case, if you can get rid of the vibrations that then manifest into something physical, because they constellate as something dense in the outer, if you get rid of the vibrations that have their way of having to live something through in a reflective denseness, then you can do things like transport or move objects. In other words, you can transcend space. So, psychic abilities have to do with playing on the edges of time and space that are important as foundational points to a vibrational imaged manifestation.
